Explore The New Rules of Reality In New Research Report from We Are Pi and TEDxAmsterdam.

December 2023, Amsterdam based Creative Innovation Consultancy, We Are Pi, has teamed up with TEDxAmsterdam to create The New Rules of Reality research report, available to download free.

The cultural research report is a result We Are Pi's research and strategy team sitting down with TEDx Amsterdam 2023 speakers active in various industries to explore the shift from one-sided perspectives to a more open-minded understanding on diverse realities.

Encouraging a shift from one-sided views to a more open-minded understanding of diverse realities, this NSR issue explores why multiple realities are a source of optimism, and not fear.

"The problem is that people view other realities as a threat to their own. How we see it is that welcoming multiple realities gives us the empathy the world desperately needs." 

 Kyle Fiore, Head of Strategy, We Are Pi
